Warhammer 40K Vs Halo

Warhammer 40K Vs Halo

In what seemed like a good idea at the time, here by request is the Warhammer 40K universe matched up against the Halo Universe.

I think even if you had 10,000 Spartans, this battle wouldn’t be very close.

Any hope for the Halo universe?

    what if halo uses the halow rings and destroys all life on all the planets?

  2. L-W April 23, 2009 at 9:16 am -      #202

    All life on all planets? That’s not how the Halo rings work.

  3. kano547 April 23, 2009 at 12:27 pm -      #203

    while i do not know much about halo and the halo rings from what i’ve read its like a doomsday device built by the forerunners to kill the flood but i dont know how it works .but im betting a couple of ironclads with planet killer cannons on board could do as much or more damage than the halos so its pretty much a foregone conclusion warhammer would win mostly through numbers if they have to but they will win. its like the mc vs a space marine fight only times a couple billion. and thats assuming they even know about halo correct me if im wrong but wasnt mc the only human that knew about halo and the covenant couldnt find it.

    now rohan google lexicanum and start reading it and soon enough you will agree that there is no hope for halo

  4. kano547 April 23, 2009 at 12:50 pm -      #204

    there is a possibility for halo to win. read before you facepalm please. lets say for some reason humans and covenant band together to go conquer some planets and they discovered warhammer and thought to themselves lets go steal some planets from them they wont mind and if they do we can handle them.after this the humans would be after revenge and every thing else would just want to kill them for various reasons.all of warhammer could attack halo at the exact same time old grudges would come up and they might wipe each other of the face of the galaxy leaving halo all alone with all those worlds.or halo could get caught in the cross fire and be destroyed completely just by stray rounds from the most epic war to ever happen.

    come to think of it the sheer awsome from witnessing that might make all the wimpy humans from halo’s heads explode because they didnt grow up in 40k so they wouldnt have built up an tolerance to such epic-ness and wouldnt be able to handle it

  5. Locutus April 23, 2009 at 1:15 pm -      #205

    “attack halo at the exact same time old grudges would come up and they might wipe each other of the face of the galaxy leaving halo all alone with all those worlds.”

    They have been wiping eachother off the face of the galaxy for over 10,000 years. I doubt it will end any time soon.

    Anyways, this wouldn’t happen because this is a universe VS universe battle. All of 40k is united with the single goal of destroying the Halo universe. Halo is united with the goal of destroying 40k. 40k wins.

  9. sangheli_special_ops_elite May 3, 2009 at 7:26 pm -      #209

    flood would conquer orks easy orks would keep charging into waves of flood and do nothing but feed them

    flood would be crushed but not easily crushed by marines for the fact marines are stronger spartans and 1 spartan destroyed an entire ship by himself but marines don’t have shields so flood might be able to infect them

    flood would be overwhelmed by tyrannid

    out of flood and eldar the………..well i don’t know the graveminds collective supernatural powers would pose a threat to the psychic powers of the eldar but eldar and flood would be fighting heavily with no real victors since eldar have a naval and range advatage but floods hand to hand advatage makes up for it

    and everyone else the flood would almost certainly lose too

    i only use flood because there the only race that can stand up to any faction in the 40k universe

  10. sangheli_special_ops_elite May 16, 2009 at 12:29 am -      #210

    And i forgot the dark eldar would loose to the flood since flood “feel no pain” and dark eldar torturing enemies. The moment they realised this they would avoid the flood like tyrannids do with necrons.

  11. Space marine May 16, 2009 at 2:15 am -      #211

    flood would be eliminated by the Eldar striking scorpions and howling banshee’s,

    “marines don’t have shields so flood might be able to infect them”
    Shields are for pussies, real marines use ARMOUR!

    “flood would conquer orks easy orks would keep charging into waves of flood and do nothing but feed them”

    More fail.

    “flood would be crushed but not easily crushed by marines ”

    Please, No more fail, Thanks.

    Space Marine!
    You know that some are lost to us, Hotshot is a member of that list, as is sangheli, just ignore him if you want to keep your sanity.

    I have put forth evidence before actually regarding Ork physiology in relation to the flood, and came to somewhat of the conclusion that the Orks might be immune to infection, same with Space Marines, tho my conclusion for that was that Marines are very likely Flood resistant based on my know capabilities of the flood infection form and Space Marine physiology.

  14. PaleoTyrantus June 7, 2009 at 5:50 pm -      #214

    I lol’d when I saw this topic. I ROFL’d when I saw the n00bs defending Halo! I don’t see the Haloverse destroying a single race! The f*cking Tau would wipe the floor with the covenant.

  15. TheSorrow June 7, 2009 at 7:24 pm -      #215

    Hey Paleo Tyrantus! I like how your getting all high and mighty after you made that pathetic excuse for a post in Marcus Fenix vs. Master Chief. Like we need a know nothing brat like you staining this site with your garbage.

    Nothing David…..nothing. A few planets go and then the rings are destroyed.

  43. WYLTK July 17, 2009 at 5:34 am -      #243

    HA ha ha, the 40 k universe is pathetic, if i was halo universe i would just stand back and watch it destroy itself. also they have the arc :) capable of firing all the halo rings in the galaxy killing everything, so you have a draw, no one wins

  44. WYLTK July 17, 2009 at 5:56 am -      #244

    and for those that dont know how the halo rings work. They generate a massive pulse destroying all sentient life in that part of the galaxy so the flood starve themselves until they die. it was a forunner backup plan incase the flood were winning.

  45. Locutus July 17, 2009 at 10:41 pm -      #245

    Even if Halo’s pussy suicide devices were set off, Warhammer 40k would still endure. The Tyranid fleets outside the galaxy would be unharmed. Eldar are safe in their Webways. The Necrons would be unaffected. Chaos Gods and their inexhaustible armies are in the Warp. All ships and their passengers travelling through the Warp during the blast would also survive. The Emperor may even use his godlike psyker powers and save most of Humanity from extinction. His body may be dead, but his consciousness and power still remain.

    Halo has nothing that can defeat 40k.

  46. L-W July 18, 2009 at 1:00 am -      #246

    Plus there’s nothing stopping the Chaos Gods (or one of the many high level individuals) from just dropping the installations into a warp bubble for a few thousand years whilst they disassemble them for spare parts.

    “The Tyranid fleets outside the galaxy would be unharmed”

    I sincerely doubt that even the Tyranids caught within the blast radius would be affected, since they rely more so upon a primordial psychic link rather than any form of individual sentience.

  47. WYLTK July 18, 2009 at 7:53 am -      #247

    i Have respect for both universes and any other case i would agree. But the sentinels are around and they can just keep firing the rings. tyranids are just like flood. they would starve. eldar wouldnt care, they would jusyt stay out of it, nobody could harm them. annd the emporor? he has limits.

    Hmm, they are alike… Spartans and space marines, tyranids and flood, orcs and brutes, marines and imperial guard, elites and eldar (sort of) CONSPIRACY

  48. Kenny C. July 18, 2009 at 1:27 pm -      #248

    I think in the endless combat and war of the WH 40k universe… all the races would use the Halo universe as target practice.

    Think of it…. Imperial ships in orbit of the various planets in the Halo universe (after destorying the various pathetic fleets of the HU) and using a dart board with the maps of each planet and hitting the corresponding areas.

  49. Locutus July 19, 2009 at 12:15 am -      #249

    “But the sentinels are around and they can just keep firing the rings.”

    They can fire them all they want. The Necrons, Eldar, Tyranids, and Chaos powers remain to destroy the Halos and claim victory. 40k wins.

  50. L-W July 19, 2009 at 2:14 am -      #250

    “tyranids are just like flood. they would starve.”

    Starve the Tyranids?

    The Tyranids feed on planets, not just sentient organisms; they strip the crust of the nutrients and minerals they require and regurgitate it into a feeding pool, where the culmination of the entire planetary biomass is digested and fed into orbiting hiveships via mile long tendrils.

    Starving the Tyranids with denial of sentient organisms is the equivalent of starving a Lion by refusing to feed it vegetables. The futility of your efforts will demonstrate itself once they begin to eat the crust from beneath your feet.

  51. Kenny C. July 30, 2009 at 11:31 pm -      #251

    I nominate WH 40k for the BankGambling award, because there is nothing Halo can do to win.

  52. Locutus July 31, 2009 at 1:05 am -      #252

    I still nominate it..

    FP award here.

    Yes, more awards to populate the Wiki!

  55. Sean0931 August 2, 2009 at 8:44 pm -      #255

    Why are people voting for Halo? I have yet to see one convincing argument as to how anything the Covenant, UNSC or Flood do can even remotely affect the IoM. Apart from giving them a reliable FTL drive, of course, but slipstream isn’t exactly the Usain Bolt of Faster-than-Light tech.

    Even the most lethal of Halo’s combatants, the flood, can do virtually nothing to any race (Except the Tau, but they’re only still around because no-one has noticed them yet). The Orks may be vulnerable to flood infection, but it is unlikely, to say the least. This is because Orks literally run on psychic energy. The Waaugh effect is the reason Orks can have their head transplanted with an axe, a needle and some thread, and why propeller-powered Ork fighters work in space. Ghazkull, the greatest current Ork Warlord had his brain removed and replaced with a lump of metal, and he’s still killing. Ork technology works because they belive it will, to the extent of red-painted Trukks actually going faster, and Ork tech failing once they have left the system. flood are going to find it hard to infect such a bizarre race, and even if they do they will be completely unable to spread by virtue of being unable to work their ships. At all.

  56. ki-hunter August 3, 2009 at 4:31 am -      #256

    why dos evrey bodey keep saying the guard are weak!?! you wont say that if you knew the catachan guard wich are rambo,GI JOE, jungle comandos or commandos for orks

  57. Sean0931 August 4, 2009 at 5:25 pm -      #257

    The guard are anything but weak. On average they are far better trained than modern soldiers, and have far more combat experience. Their equipment is orders of magnitude above modern small arms and armour. Most people will know how powerful the lasgun is, shooting through thick concrete walls and thick steel doors and still killing people on the other side (The former was a full-power shot, the latter was regular shots. The soldier shot through a steel door was thrown across a room but survived thanks to his armour). Autoguns are most likely far more powerful than modern arms, from their effects. In “Traitor General” they are described as HEAT rounds, and they show far greater penetration than modern weapons, such as penetrating through the same steel door that the lasgun rounds went through. Guard body armour is also incredible, as in “Straight Silver” a soldier is shot with a .50cal round and the only damage was a serious bruise that he didn’t even notice until later. The average guardsman also carries a huge amount of extra equipment in case they need it; steel rope, flashbangs, 60-hour torch packs, the list is rather long (Honour Guard).

    To summarise, IG are far from mooks that use human wave tactics. Some Planetary Defense Forces are incredibly inept, but most are at or above modern training levels.

  58. Sean0931 August 4, 2009 at 5:33 pm -      #258


    The Tyranids probably would be affected by the Halos, as in the first game they are stated to kill all creatures over a certain level of biomass, any creatures that are capable of supporting the flood, rather than just destroying sentinent life. However, Tyranid microrgansims and smaller Tyranoforms might go unaffected, maybe even rippers, as they do not weigh much more than a flood infection form, which would be unnaffected by the Halos. As entire worlds have been destroyed when a few ‘Nid lab samples are released (Gunheads, I think), it’s safe to say that the Tyranids would grow anew. Besides, firing the rings isn’t really an option, as it is more a MAD than an actual victory. That is if the rings even extend into Warhammer Space, whether the galaxies are interspersed or adjacent isn’t yet given.

  59. Chapter Champion August 11, 2009 at 11:58 am -      #259

    There’s no way the Halo Universe can win. Any Halofan has been owned, several times. I nominate Warhammer 40,000.

    If Halo only gets everything as of say H2 then it is just a curbstomp.
    But throw the Forerunner into the mix and there is a small, 900 trillion to 1 chance that they could wipe out most of 40K since the Warp is so slow…but then can’t the GEoM blow up stars will shall on the Golden Throne?
    I have been reading up on 40K and it–nothing short of the Culture could stop it I would say. Just give it the award, Halo had no chance in the end.

    @ All mighty Admin

    I believe this thread has chosen 40k for the BankGambling award. Many people here have nominated it, and have proven that Halo can not survive the onslaught brought by 40k. So I come before you, a humble fool, to request the BankGambling award for Warhammer 40k, O mighty Admin!

    - pondering fool

  62. L-W September 1, 2009 at 11:43 am -      #262

    “The Tyranids probably would be affected by the Halos, as in the first game they are stated to kill all creatures over a certain level of biomass, any creatures that are capable of supporting the flood, rather than just destroying sentinent life.”

    Nothing in the Halo canon supports this statement, however there are dozens of quotes that support the specific annihilation of Sentient life.

    “Ouch…unlike SW, 40K is meant to have wank-a-tons.”

    Apparently you missed the Death Star scene.

    wh40k would kill halo with fire.

    hell, *insert factional army group or navy here* would kill the haloverse with fire.

    trust those above me, wh40k can, does, will, and loves killing things (with fire)

    the flood? burna boyz

    the covenant? the imperial navy.

    the MC? tzeentchian horror’s, so he gets killed with multicoloured insanity inducing fire (for more flavour)

    forerunners? sisters of battle (i almost wanted to write mercy there, lol oldschool rockin’) because of fire.

    basically….the haloverse would d.i.a.f

  67. Siggymansz February 9, 2010 at 4:53 am -      #267

    the rings kill the halo side as well, killing yourself to destroy your enemy is not a win, but all this has been covered several times already.

  74. Locutus February 24, 2010 at 6:11 am -      #274

    Yes it had already been covered that the major 40k powers would survive a galactic Halo ring detonation.
    Halo would be doing itself a favor by detonating them. Better to commit nice quick suicide rather than suffer the brutal ass rape that the 40k universe will give them.

  75. shaun182 February 24, 2010 at 9:50 am -      #275

    the covenant and unsc might try surrendering to the tau, one of the only forces in 40k, that would only some aspect of the culture’s as well as themselves survive.

    but im pretty sure this is not allowed due to the way the match is set up, its a battle to the death after all.

  76. Majorclown March 3, 2010 at 11:21 pm -      #276

    gah! too many words, but me thinks the covenent would mirge with the tau empire, or else it would get buttraped 500thousand times over (or even more). But considering that the covenent does have their plasmaweaponry 101 down they might have a chance, but only as a minor race.

    UNSMC doesn’t stand any sort of chance, even just Imp conscripts would just fuck em up :D when I think about it a handfull of flashlights could easily destroy a scorpion in a few seconds >_

    -yes I know this is a univers vs univers match and 40k wins out-right just out of sheer awsomeness
    and I'm putting my money on that commisar John Fuklaw and 5 angymaries could take on the whole Halo Univers

    Oh and pardon my spelling, I hope that is not an issue

  77. Sergey March 5, 2010 at 2:22 am -      #277

    Actually, the Halo rings can’t pierce the shields of the void shields and etc. So, how is it going to kill Warhammer 40,000.

  78. Siggymansz March 5, 2010 at 3:21 am -      #278

    …..waht bout MC Vs The Postal dude? he pisses fire

  79. truckman March 7, 2010 at 1:36 am -      #279

    Wait! While I think it is dumb for anyone to even consider that Halo-verse could beat the 40k-verse, since in 40k everything a sci-fi setting can have is turned to 11,

    but, I can think of 2 ways the Halo-verse could “survive for slightly more than 10 minutes” and for the second theory, become a part of a 40k faction which actually has a chance of victory within an inter-40k brawl

    1. Assuming the sum of all covenant and UNSC forces simply popped into the 40k milky way fully supplied and already friendly (and assuming Covenant has outgrown superstitions regarding Forerunner tech), they could use their no-risk-of-soul-devouring, non-traveling-through-hell slipspace travel to get to Tau territory and request asylum. The Tau could reverse engineer anything the covenant has (not sure how advanced the Tau’s tech is, im assuming much better than covenant, but maybe they can open up some forerunner artifacts the covenant have but were afraid to tamper with, or just get ideas on stuff to outfit their fire-warriors with like energy-shield gauntlets) and Covenant/UNSC engineers could adapt Tau tech to help them. The Haloverse forces could then settle in as members of the Tau.
    No, there are not nearly enough infantry in the UNSC/Cov. to be meaningful to the Tau, but in addition to Tech, some Cov. races genetic material could help the Kroot out maybe?
    HOWEVER, what would BY FAR be their greatest contribution to the Tau Empire would be SLIPSPACE TRAVEL. the Tau would finally have reliable FTL, which might actually be enough to make them a power to be reckoned with. (Or it will make the Tau just strong enough to be worthy of the Imperium caring, and the Ordo Xenos swats them. But knowing how slow the Imperium responds to anything, it would probably take long enough for the Halo-people to die out from old age, which is better than a lot of people can say in the 40k universe. Meh)

    2. THE FLOOD: This scenario would allow a Halo-faction be sorta-kinda part of one of the only 40k factions with a shot at victory.

    Basically, the Flood encounter the Tyranids, and come to the conclusion that being assimilated by the Tyranids would be good for them.
    A Flood-infested ship crashes into a Hive Fleet with the express purpose of being devoured. Now the ‘Nids are far more adaptable than the Flood, and probably have nothing to gain from the ability to make Combat Forms or Carrier Forms, as they have far more effective and GRIMDARK versions of those things. So while Slipspace travel would be the greatest gift Halo could give the Tau, the Flood’s gift would be the GRAVEMIND! The ‘Nids already are a hivemind, but when the Flood consumes enough biomass, their hivemind develops sentience, they create a Gravemind. The Tyranid hivemind could adapt to become the same nature as the Flood Hivemind, and since the amount of biomass available in the entire Halo-galaxy would be breadcrumbs compared to what the tyranids eat on a daily basis, I assume this Nid-Gravemind, what with its MASSIVE WARP PRESENCE combined with EXTREME INTELLIGENCE AND SENTIENCE, would basically be a new Chaos God (maybe of Hunger?) and OM NOM NOM everything.

    Actually, the Flood would be dangerous against most (cept maybe Daemons, Orks, and Tyranids) on land because a touch infects them, but the rest could go bombardment on them.

    See, Flood are dangerous when fully awaken, but some have the capabilities to take them on:
    Tyranids who are infected are killed before they change
    Daemons are warp entities and are probably impossible to infect
    Orks have the WAAAGH and could maybe, and just maybe, believe Orks shouldn’t turn to the Flood.

    The rest could fire from space and make them go bye bye before they can even find a way off.

  81. TheSorrow March 10, 2010 at 9:21 pm -      #281

    What if the UNSC decided to fire a Super MAC on a higher ranking Space Marine (like Marneus Calgar)? Purely hypothetical, I think it would be very interesting to see.

  82. Sergey March 10, 2010 at 9:24 pm -      #282

    9 TT of death? That would destroy a Titan, easily.

  83. TheSorrow March 10, 2010 at 9:36 pm -      #283

    So there is at least two things that would have some effect (even infinitesimally small overall) on Warhammer 40K. The Super MAC or maybe even a MAC and the Nova Bomb.

    TheSorrow don’t forget the Glassing the Covenant can do, it would basically just be an exterminatus that takes a few hours to do, but with slow communication and reaction speeds of the Imperium, that would hardly make a difference.

    Since da Orkz are fungal and reproduce with spores, I’m not sure the Flood could infect them, but that might hinge on factors such as calcium levels, spinal columns and how their central nervous ststems work. Of course, the Flood are kinda fungus/spore based as well, which might make assimilation possible…….

    Other than my above Flood/Tyranid alliance theory, i think

    if the flood start off slow and under the radar of the major factions interest (god knows they have enough to deal with), they might actually manage to gain some modest success in the 40k universe , or at least remain a chronic nuisance and avoid being wiped out completely.
    initially, they could stick to devouring low priority, small population Human worlds with negligible defenses. The central bureaucracy on Terra allegedly can forget about entire worlds they own, the Flood could quietly scour those places of life, and sneak away in small civilian spaceships (maybe they could assimilate a Navigator and use his warp-travel skills like how they assimilate people who know how to pilot starships), or just travel conventially and not care about the reeeeeeeealllllllly long time it would take. Alternately attack startup Tau planets for their better ships or orkz since they instinctively know how to build things and even if most of those things only work because they believe they do, harvesting that knowledge could totally benefit the flood.

    Anyway, they could slowly get more and more troops and biomass, and crash land some ships onto progressively larger and larger worlds over wider areas at the same time. Hell, one small cruiser could potentially crash its way down to the lower levels of one of the many enormous megahive worlds, without much notice being taken. Within days they could probably have an insane amount of combat forms before the upper-level hive nobles even notice, much less care. Before the planet can be exterminatus’d, enough flood could have flown away for them to have made a profit.

    A single Flood spore can destroy a species.

    then leave they might be able to collect a decent amount of biomass and troops. Maybe they could

    “Since da Orkz are fungal and reproduce with spores, I’m not sure the Flood could infect them”

    i very much doubt that flood could infect an ork, as you stated their part fungus, and the flood have never been shown to be able to consume and control plant life before, and since orks can have their heads cut off and placed on another orkz body im guessing their nervous sysytem isnt all that complex.

    “The central bureaucracy on Terra allegedly can forget about entire worlds they own, the Flood could quietly scour those places of life, and sneak away in small civilian spaceships”

    this is stating the flood would some how, have a greater knowledge of the inner workers and geography of the Imperium, than the Imperials do which is utter nonsense, how could they find a low level, low population planet, without attacking a larger one which is the only place which would hold this information, thus alerting the IOM of flood presence.

    “Anyway, they could slowly get more and more troops and biomass, and crash land some ships onto progressively larger and larger worlds over wider areas at the same time.

    i think you are downplayer the IOM ability to deal with infectious lifeforms, they have a lot experience dealing with things like Nurgles Rot.

    The flood couldn’t infect spacemarines in armor. Their little needle arms wouldn’t be able to penetrate the adamantium armour or probably even the carapace inserted under their skin. IG could be infected, but then the planet they are on is destroyed by orbital bombardment cannons of several space marine battle barges

    kano547, your comment made my day:)

  88. Locutus May 8, 2010 at 8:11 pm -      #288

    Still bored…so I made this ship comparison.


  89. michael May 22, 2010 at 1:50 pm -      #289

    wow, very little was even covered on Chaos Deamons… probably for the best. flood might be able to be the foot stools to a plaguebearer. flood is similar to nurgle, but only not as strong, a squad of 8 plaguebearers could decimate the flood leader, teleport at will, and immune to disease, and plagues, and infection.

  90. Sergey May 22, 2010 at 4:00 pm -      #290

    I have heard that an Imperial ship crossed 9 AUs in 93 minutes. A single AU is 149,597,871 kilometers, multiplied by 8 it comes to 1,346,380,839 kilometers. Divided by 93 it decreases to 14,477,213.32 kilometers a minute or 241,286.8887 kilometers a second. Light speed is 300,000 km/s, so a ship really does go at .75c, so how are UNSC ships going to keep up with the Imperial Navy?

  91. ChunksAhoy May 24, 2010 at 7:50 pm -      #291

    methinks 40k is gonna win. Space Marines are like spartans on steroids (and apperently some vulnerable shoulders) and there’s 1,000 of ‘em in every chapter sooo…..

  92. ben"jammin" June 6, 2010 at 6:03 pm -      #292

    LMAO at all the people who are defending Halo. Its like comparring cavemen with the army of modern America. Only 35,000 years of war and evolution separate the two armies. I think thats already enough said.

    Who would win “cavemen with sticks and stones Vs America in 2010!”

    40 K for the win…….. there is no argument or comparrison.

  93. Locutus June 6, 2010 at 7:27 pm -      #293

    I think it’s more about the size of 40k’s forces that screws Halo, not the tech. I was reading 5th Edition and it says this about the Tyranids: “behind the Hive fleets lies the barren husks of a dozen galaxies already consumed.”

    They have consumed 12 fucking galaxies! Can anyone calculate the population of the Tyranid race with that?

  94. Inarto June 6, 2010 at 7:48 pm -      #294

    “I think it’s more about the size of 40k’s forces that screws Halo, not the tech”
    You sure about that? Calculations and and in lore numbers etc seem to say otherwise.

  95. Locutus June 6, 2010 at 8:40 pm -      #295

    No, that’s not what I meant. 40k tech is vastly superior. I was trying to point at that even if all 40k tech was somewhat inferior, the ridiculous size of their forces would still give them the victory over the Halo powers.

  96. Inarto June 6, 2010 at 8:47 pm -      #296

    Ah ok my bad. Damn got my books out for nothing.

  97. Darkbydesign June 7, 2010 at 1:46 pm -      #297

    I love both Halo and 40 K but comparing them both is like apples and oranges. War hammer is set way to many years in the future.

    Still if you could compare the two I would say war hammer for the win. Even 1 on 1 its a no contest…… A space marine would wipe the floor with the master chief. A space marine basically is master chief after *30,000* (yes thirty thousand) years of genetic, psychological, physical modifications and warfare based evolution. Each 40 K marine has like two hearts and three lungs and can with stand punishment a 21 century soldier probably couldn’t even inflict.. (Even the chief would be punching above his weight in this fight!) ;o)

  98. lord cthulhu June 13, 2010 at 12:05 pm -      #298

    the only possible way to win for halo would be if the halo side is back before the forrunner-flood war. if the forrunners were in full strangth then maby, MABY they could win

  99. lord cthulhu June 13, 2010 at 12:18 pm -      #299

    i am not sourewho said it something like “ill use the halo rings to kill imperial fleets. well there is at least one huge problem with that. the halo rings work by releasing a type of radiation that fryes the nerons( i nkow i spelled it wrong) in the brains of advanced species. you would thank this would be a good weapon the problem is that the ring do’s not fire a laser it shoots in all directions so your fleet will die to,

  100. unsc freak June 30, 2010 at 12:59 pm -      #300

    since this is v “halo” halo in a massive curb stom against wh 40k, the forruners had thousands of dreadnaughts, just a single dreadnaught was 15 kilometers long a decimated almost the enire sengrhilie fleet without sustaining soo much as a scratch, the dam shields were never depleated, and just so you know thats over 400 warships on par with covenant assult carriers, you would require double that amount to take down the sheilds, and another 200 to destroy the ship, thats over 1000 warships atacking the dreadnaught at the same time without retreating to destroy one, and you would have no more than one or two surviving ships left, now thay had thousands of dreadnaughts but theire entire fleet would be rated in the hundreds of thousands, they enhabited and controled an entire galaxy, then you add in the covenant, the unsc and the flood, WH has no hope even if they had a million warships, and their moral would deminish once they found out that their enemy could wipe out all life in the galaxy with the single push of a button, well turn of a key to be correct, and the flood would not die if the rings are activated. so technecly, halo wins either way
